This property is the central part of the original Manor house
Located on a hilltop with fabulous 360° views out over the surrounding countryside, Casa Torretta is located within an exquisitely designed and beautifully maintained residential complex with landscaped grounds, mature olive trees and a stunning swimming pool (8 x 20 meters).
The residence is accessed by an impressive cyprus-lined driveway with automatic gates suspended on beautifully crafted stone columns and graveled driveways. On entering the grounds one is immediately transfixed by the elegant layout and the stunning views from each quarter.
There are four or five large ex-farmhouses on the estate, some privately owned and others divided into smaller units such as this lovely house, attached on two sides, of 140 sqmts . Special features include an original stone stair case with a vaulted ceiling, but the whole property has been restored to perfection with only the highest quality reclaimed materials and all of them in keeping with the classical and traditional Tuscan style.
On the ground floor there is an open space living/dining and kitchen room and guest bathroom. On the first floor there are two luminous bedrooms and a bathroom with shower. On the second floor there is a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a built in wardrobe.
Externally, the property has a private garden of 100 sqmts with a pergola in cast iron. Within the grounds there is a large shared pool for all guests to enjoy. The price includes the fully fitted kitchen made by a local artisan in chestnut wood.
The developer who orchestrated the restoration of the complex is a ‘maestro’ in his own right and has a solid reputation in the area for having constructed two other equally beautiful developments which are all excellently and competently managed.
The obvious advantage to buying a home within a residential complex is the knowledge that the property is secure and looked after in one’s absence. More interestingly perhaps is the social aspect which has provided much pleasure and an immediate sense of belonging to many of the owners.
